Year 12

Year 12

In their final year, students are given an array of wonderful opportunities to grow, lead and celebrate their time at the College. For a select number of students, the year begins prior to the commencement of the academic calendar, attending a trip to Cambodia with Samaritan’s Purse. This is a highly challenging but rewarding trip, in which students engage with a vastly different culture from their own. Students conduct lessons, distribute Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes and visit and contribute to projects sponsored by the College. For the entire year level, the academic year begins with a retreat, during which students hear from motivational speakers, set personal and academic goals, and develop a community spirit. Each Home Group works together to create a banner, which is representative of who they are and who they desire to be as a group meeting daily over the course of the year. This is an important time to unify and inspire the students before they undertake a rigorous year of study.

Students are supported in many ways at Oxley Christian College. Unique to Year 12 is a structured mentoring program. Each student has the opportunity to meet with a selected teacher on a regular basis, who can provide additional encouragement and support in their final year. The entire year level is further assisted through regular morning teas, in which both staff and students come together to celebrate the year level’s successes. 

Year 12 students enjoy the opportunities provided by Oxley. Students frequently comment on the positive culture and supportive environment that they experience throughout their years at the College, but particularly as they undertake Year 12. We strive to prepare these young adults for their future by providing opportunities for academic, personal and spiritual growth in their final year at school.
